Casual chic style is both elegant and comfortable. Anthony’s has the details.
Casual Chic Style, Explained

What is casual chic, exactly? You’ve heard the term before, for sure. But what does it mean? Simply put, outfits that are casual chic combine some elements of casual wear and others of more elegant, formal wear.

This eclectic mix-and-match approach to style combines the best of both worlds: comfort and style.

There’s no set casual chic dress code. Certain individual pieces can sometimes be considered casual chic attire in and of themselves. Often, though, a more casual piece like a jean will be paired with a more formal piece like a silk blouse for a look that when put together is casual chic.

Let’s dive a little deeper (and, while we’re at it, provide some casual chic outfit ideas).

How to Dress Casual But Chic

There are really no rules for casual chic attire — you’re only bound by your imagination and comfort level when it comes to this wide-ranging and inclusive style category.

Want to pair your favorite heels and patent leather purse with a cotton maxi dress? Go right ahead.

How about a more formal blouse with denim capris and sandals? That works too.

So does a sundress and sneakers.

The one abiding rule for casual chic attire is this: choose pieces that are both comfortable and fashionable.
